    I'm not much of a social media guy myself, but I do like Instagram. We're going to redo our website in 2014 so get some really killer shots. Only the best ones will make the cut for the website this time around;).

    Lol. Thats my temp grill. I took my satoshi apart and cut the lip down to 1 1/4". So now i guess its a medium depth satoshi. Then i sanded everything, fixed some little chips from rocks and i still need to finish the paint job.

    Thanks again! Ya i took it off. I don't really have a good place to mount it, it doesn't fit between the grill guard hoop, so i will most likely sell it and go a different route for lighting after xmas time. I am having trouble making up my mind though maybe you guys can help. Heres what i have been thinking

    1. All LEDs. A smaller 20"+ bar mounted directly on the bumper, spot pattern, i will probably go with a small single row bar and get a high quality one like rigid. Then a pair of small fog pattern LEDs (rigid duallys?) mounted in one of the openings in the bumper.

    2. HIDs behind the grill. Probably Hella 500s converted to HID or something similar. I would like to do 4, two driving pattern, two fog. Thats probably one of the cheaper options, in the BST sections there is a used set of 4 for $200 right now.

    3. Lightforce! Some big old lights, like 9-10". maybe halogen or HID, undecided. I would mount a pair with driving pattern directly on the bumper or hang them from the grill guard. If i can i would like to fit 3, one fog two driving.

    Or if i hit the lottery i would do a combination. I love the fill you get from light bars but they really don't throw light that far, at least the one i had didn't. If i could afford whatever i want i would be doing lightforce for distance and rigid for fill.
